The Rhinos have re-signed back up goalkeeper Chase Harrison. Harrison has signed a one year deal with an option for 2009.
This is a solid move and will allow for the Rhinos to once again have a back up goalkeeper that they can count on in the event that Scott Vallow suffers an injury.
I am surprised that Harrison didn't spend more time looking for a starting job. Although, perhaps the Rhinos told him that their offer had an expiration date and he'd rather have the job in hand as opposed to two in the bush.
Steven Goff of the Washington Post is reporting that the New York Red Bulls manager Bruce Arena has resigned.
There are other reports, such as at DuNord's blog with news that Frank Yallop has left the LA Galaxy to be the head coach with the expansion San Jose Earthquakes in 2008.
It's going to be a really interesting off season in MLS. And I can't wait for the coaching rumor mill to go into hyperdrive!
